Ilana Tamari, a highly-skilled Accredited Family Mediator with OAFM and Certified Specialist in Mediation FDRP MED (FDRIO).
As a Mediator, Ilana provides Open or Closed Mediation for separated parents.
Mediation is a process in which an accredited mediator and Certified Specialist in Mediation with FDRIO (FDRP MED) works with parents who are newly separated or soon to be separated and need a Parenting Plan.
The parents may disagree over decision-making (custody) and parenting time (access) arrangements that they would like to see for their children. Generally, parents who are not high conflict in nature are good candidates for this process as there need to be some reasonable communication skills and goodwill between them.
As a mediator, Ilana Tamari will facilitate communication and decisions in regard to your child’s needs and will help you achieve an agreement in relation to issues of decision making and time-sharing. She will help develop a Parenting Plan that is tailored to your family’s needs and most notably to your children’s unique needs and developmental stages. Prior to the completion of the Parenting Plan, Ilana Tamari will request that each parent have the plan vetted by their lawyer or taken to an independent family lawyer prior to signing off on the Plan.
Through individual and joint meetings, Ilana Tamari, Accredited Family Mediator, will help you develop a parenting plan, and can bridge the differences between parents while keeping in mind a child-focused approach that is tailored to the developmental needs of the children as they age and grow.
At the completion of the mediation process, the Mediator will provide each parent and their respective lawyers with a detailed document of protocols for separated parents, where it outlines all decision making and parenting time matters.
